The National Coordinator Southern And Middle Belt Leadership Forum, Chief John Nnia Nwodo has described the late spokesman of the Pan Yoruba body, the Afenifere, Chief Yinka Odumakin as a great advocate for a better Nigeria, an uncompromising fighter for a restructured Nigeria.
Chief Nwodo who was the immediate past President General of Pan Igbo Organization, the Ohanaeze said in statement that Yinka’s death must energize latent potentialities in the struggle for a better Nigeria.
He said that Yinka gave his all so that Nigeria can be better. He spoke out, he poured his heart out in his writings, he mobilized his people to stand up for their convictions, he forgot family and self so that his country can survive. He has bowed out in circumstances where better facilities could have saved him.
“Our Secretary in the Southern And Middle Belt Leadership Forum, has taken a bow, an irrepressible advocate for a restructured Nigeria has gone to his Maker, advocate of good governance has gone to his Creator, a friend and compatriot has bowed to death”.Nwodo said
“Yinka Odumakin was my friend, my ally, my compatriot, my fellow traveler in a committed journey to a better Nigeria”.
Nwodo urged Nigerians to bury late Yinka Odumakin by standing up for his convictions and with a resolve to never falter in their readiness to make whatever sacrifice to make to ensure that the country is rescued from the cliff of catastrophe that it is descending into.
